We hope that you and your loved ones continue to be healthy and safe, and you’re doing a better job of making healthy eating choices than we are! Fortunately, many local area Farmers’ Markets are open with modified operations to comply with social distancing recommendations, and some vendors will even deliver! Go ahead — add some fruits and vegetables to your diet AND support local producers. It’s a win-win!
